My daughter and I were looking for something delicious to make on Sunday. I'd just bought some Nutella on sale at the grocery. This is what we came up with. I was busy cooking so she did it all herself. Aren't they gorgeous?
Here's the original recipe:
1/2 cup butter (I used margarine)
4 oz cream cheese
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking pwder
3/4 cup finely chopped almonds
raspberry or apricot jam (We used Nutella)
Preheat oven to 350F
We didn't have any cream cheese or almonds so we omitted those, but the cookies were rich enough without them.
In a large bowl, cream butter and cream cheese with sugar. Add egg and blend well. Sift flour with baking powder. Stir in almonds and add to creamed mixture.
Knead dough gently until smooth and pull off pieces of dough to make 2 inch balls. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet and make an indentation in center of each ball with thumb. Bake about 10-12 minutes and then remove from oven. If indentations have risen too much, press again and then place 1/2 tsp of Nutella in centers. Return to oven and bake another 12-15 minutes until golden . (The original recipe calls for jam in the centers)
My daughter, Brittany, then drizzled melted chocolate over the tops and we had a fabulous looking dessert.
